the truth equation

March 31st, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

Today, in your Undergraduate Philosophy Class that actually ends up lasting for every semester of your entire life: is there really such a thing as truth? And Is truth the same as fact? And with the infinity of fact in the internet, is there such a thing as Fact anymore? It is human nature to find evidence to support our belief, and ignore everything else. Isn’t then truth just fact + pre-existing belief / life experience = truth? I keep coming up against this question in my adult life, when I find myself torn between two existing schools of thought. In an effort to try and  place myself on a certain side,  I scour the internet for Truth. More and more I realize the insanity of this quest. IS THERE EVEN SUCH A THING ANYMORE?  AND IF THIS IS QUESTION IS TRUE, IS THAT NOT TERRIFYING?
